Prepare for an arcade delight with tight controls, refreshing game mechanics, cracking retro art and a terribly hip chiptune soundtrack.

Get this game. It is worth all of the 12 seconds of download, 3 seconds of installation, and hours of time-wasting it has to offer. Especially since it's free. If you don't get this, all the children you didn't have will weep, and their tears will forever salt the fields you plow. You shall never again taste the rewards of victory, and your sheep will cry in fear.

Get this game.

Your non-children need this.

Your sheep need this.

You need this.

Fake players could download F2P games like Team Fortress or Dota 2.
True players are downloading F2P games like Super Crate Box.
This is the best free to play game in Steam.

10/10 - This game is essentially what a free-to-play game should be. There are no microtransactions, and everything you obtain is done by just skill, no unlocking things with real money. The game itself is actually pretty good, this game requires as much skill as it does precision, and the maps are well designed to keep a consistant challenge, with no exploits. Great game, great challenge, great arsenal of weapons and very good design.

The disc gun makes the game even more challenging though so just try to avoid it.

I wish I could recommend this game. I really do. The game is great, tons of fun, difficult, etc. but is unplayable due to the fact that it crashes everytime you A) use the flamethrower B) use the shotgun C) have multiple explosions occur at once D) press start on your controller. I could go on and on with the number of things that shut this game down. The worst part is that, once shut down, it takes a good 5 minutes for steam to recognize that it's closed. No, it's not just my computer, multiple of my friends are experiencing the same problem.

As much as I love this game, the game just keeps crashing.

Use the flamethrower for more than 2 seconds? CRASH!
Double press attack when equipping flamethrower? CRASH!
You decide to jump? 1/200 chance to CRASH!
Spam shotgun? 1/200 chance to CRASH!

I know that the game is free, so can't complain; but can't play it either.

Apesar de ser Free to Play, é um ótimo jogo!
Eu vi um youtuber jogar ele em um dos seus vídeos e resolvi tirar a prova viva para ver se o jogo era bom mesmo, e pode acreditar, é MUITO BOM!
As fases são hiper mega rápidas, com um arsenal imenso de armas pra você brincar e ainda por cima com bons gráficos mesmo se tratando de um jogo 16 bits. Para quem quiser passar o tempo no Steam esse jogo é uma ótima pedida!

Fantastic! Except for it doesn't work on Windows 8.1, which I have now. It either black screens, crashes, or lags. It's a super minimal game that runs on my old crap pc so I don't understand how it could lag on here.

Pure, unadulterated action bliss. With a multitude of weapons, stages and characters... this charmingly psychotic action platformer is an excellent way to while away an hour or two.
